The National Public Health Information Coalition has created an extensive toolkit to help you promote National Immunization Awareness Month. This toolkit was created to promote the importance of immunizations during National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), which occurs every August. We encourage you to use the valuable resources in this toolkit throughout the year.

The 2017 edition of the toolkit contains key messages, vaccine information, sample news releases and articles, sample social media messages, links to web resources from CDC and other organizations, and logos, web banners, posters and graphics to use with social media. It also includes a media outreach toolkit and a place for you to share your NIAM activities. You can also view what others are doing for NIAM. Use #NIAM17

Themes for the month include:

July/August

 

Back to School: Ready for school?  Make sure those vaccine records are up to date!

July 31 - Aug 6

 

Babies and Young Children: A healthy start begins with on-time vaccinations.

August 7-13

 

Pregnant Women: Protect yourself and pass protection on to your baby.

August 14-20

 

Adults: Vaccines are not just for kids.

August 21-27

 

Preteens/Teens: Ensure a healthy future with vaccines.

The National Public Health Information Coalition has created extensive resources to support each of these themes. You can use the toolkit to design your own promotions. Mix and match, copy or adapt the contents to fit the particular news and issues of your own organization or community - and share your NIAM activities to inspire others.
